php

a: php ~
b: a handgun

What: "Yes, let me introduce you to the professional PHP programmer. You see, PHP is like a handgun. On its own, it is simply an inanimate tool that has no moral leaning. In the hands of a responsible citizen, it can be used to the benefit of society. But in the hands of someone who is untrained or mentally unstable, it can be used to commit horrible atrocities.."... This is kind of a jump...put it's worth referencing, in that it shows how passionate programmers get about languages.

Php As Bash Scripting

a: Php ~
b: Bash scripting

What: "The way I like to think of it, PHP is like Bash scripting for the web: an indispensable tool that's supported almost everywhere, useful for a quick and dirty (and sure, ugly) drop-in solution, but not a language you should "seriously develop" in."

PHP is like the Borg:

a: PHP ~
b: the Borg

What: " PHP is like the Borg: assimilate everything and take the best out of it to strengthen your own position. PHP assimilates C libraries. At its heart, PHP is a small language core which can be extended to do anything by embedding specialized C libraries."

PHP is like the cook

a: PHP ~
b: the cook

What: "Suppose your website is a restaurant. PHP is like the cook, who serves up a particular dinner order made from a set of ingredients.HTML is like the food on your plate when it arrives. CSS is like the restaurant decor - the color of the plates, the placement of the lights and table cloths, the quality of the silverware and the outfit of your waiter."

Php Is Like An Old Person With Cancer

a: Php ~
b: an old person with cancer

What: "PHP is like an old person with cancer. Yes, the fact that the person is bedridden and needs chemotherapy and has trouble getting around town and can't use an iPad is a problem. But the _real_ problem is that they are just *OLD*. PHP grew up in a time BEFORE CSS. Ponder what the web was like before CSS. PHP grew up in a different era that had a different set of problems, and no amount of slapping some lambda syntax on there is going to get rid of the baggage of the problems it was built to solve for a fifteen-year-old web."

Php Objects

a: A php object ~
b: an actual house built according to a blueprint

What: " A class, for example, is like a blueprint for a house. It defines the shape of the house on paper, with relationships between the different parts of the house clearly defined and planned out, even though the house doesn't exist." and to round out this idea very clear...."An object, then, is like the actual house built according to that blueprint. The data stored in the object is like the wood, wires, and concrete that compose the house: without being assembled according to the blueprint, it's just a pile of stuff."
